Vale Fr Joe Pulis SDB

It is with deep sadness that we advise the passing of our dear Fr Joe on the afternoon of Monday 28 August 2017.

Fr Joe retired from teaching at Nagle College in December 2016; this marked 20 years of dedicated service to the Nagle College and Bairnsdale communities. Fr Joe will be sadly missed by all who knew him, or had the good fortune of having been taught by him.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Fr Joe's family, members of the Nagle College community, and especially with the many students who were taught by such a caring, knowledgeable and true gentle man. Rest in peace Fr Joe.

A Funeral Mass for the repose of the soul of Fr Joe will be celebrated at St Margaret Mary’s Church, 51 Mitchell Street, Brunswick North commencing at 11.00am on Tuesday 5 September 2017. Following the Mass, participants are invited to proceed to Salesian College, ‘Rupertswood’, Sunbury where the Burial Rites will take place at 2.30pm in the Salesian Cemetery at ‘Rupertswood’. 

We will hold a memorial Mass for Fr Joe this Friday (1 September) at 4.00 pm in the St John Bosco Chapel, followed with drinks and nibbles to allow our community to celebrate the life of Fr Joe. An invitation is extended to all members of the community to join us on Friday afternoon.
